Kamen Rider Fourze (仮面ライダーフォーゼ Kamen Raidā Fōze, Masked Rider Fourze) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series, being the thirteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-second overall. It began airing on September 4, 2011, the week following the conclusion of Kamen Rider OOO, joining Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, later Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, in the Super Hero Time line-up.

Why It Rocks

  1. The dynamic between the characters is entertaining to watch.
  2. The theme song is awesome.
  3. The villain designs are good and the victim/monster of the week is done quite well.
  4. Almost every very character is interesting and is likable in some sort of ways such as Gentaro Kisaragi/Kamen Rider Fourze, Ryusei Sakuta/Kamen Rider Meteor, Yuki Jojima, and Kengo Utahoshi.
  5. It had a team-up movie with Kamen Rider OOO. It even featured Kamen Rider W.
  6. The friendship concept is executed really well.
  7. Decent fight scenes and finishers.
  8. It had an amazing summer movie.
  9. It had a decent finale.
  10. It both aired alongside Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger in the first half (Epi. 28-51 for Gokaiger) and Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters in the second half (Ep. 1-27 for Go-Busters)

Bad Qualities

  1. The two-parter formula was at it's worst in this season, stretching out various episodes and feeling unnecessary.
    • Even the friendship concept might feel really unrealistic at times, and could be uninteresting and unbearable within that matter.
  2. Yuki Jojima tends to be annoying and childish sometimes.
  3. The team-up with Kamen Rider Amazon.
  4. While it's good, the following season (Kamen Rider Wizard) wasn't well-received at all.
